    wicked easy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I usually use the pocket rocket and the microdualist system, but for flat out boiling water/freeze dried meals, this system cannot be beat. Everything fits perfectly so there is little risk of the pot tipping over, it's got a neoprene insulation around it, and it's wicked fast. Lived off it for 5 days, used it for MH and BP meals and boiling water. Not the lightest system on the market but worth the extra weight if ur not hauling it for too long

    Great fast stove

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Bought this for a backpacking trip to Escalante. It's compact enough to fit nicely in your pack.
    The Jet Boil is incredibly simple to assemble and use and I was amazed at how quickly it boiled. Highly recommend.

    Fastest boil I've seen

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had my Flash for about a year and a half and I never go on a trip outdoors without it. I'll use it when I'm in the backcountry or a long day out at the crag. If you want a reliable, all in one cook system, any Jetboil stove is the way to go.



    Pros:

    Boils water super fast

    Everything fits into the pot keeping things organized

    Very smooth adjustment for the burner

    Nice pour top

    Cleans easily



    Cons: (which is kind of stretching for something)

    Not the lightest option for backpacking

    Fastest boil I've seen

    this is the bomb look no further

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    don't mess around with cheaper alternative sources of cooking. This saves you time, water, and fuel. Which equals less weight in the pack. When you are hungry or cold (heating up a water bottle for the sleeping bag), this does it in a hurry. It's super efficient. You only go without it once, then you see another backpacker (in your group done eating before your water boils) with a jet boil and you go buy it.

    Great Stove for Backpacking

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I used this stove on several backpacking trips off all different lengths. The weight of the stove and how compact it gets is amazing. Everything you need packs up into the cup. I've used it in fairly windy conditions and it held up fine, still kept burning. It'll heat up just about a full cup of water in just a few minutes.



    I would certainly recommend the Flash for any backpacking trips. If you have any questions regarding the Flash stove or any other gear, feel free to reach out to me directly. I'd be glad to assist in any fashion.

    perfection

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    We used the Jet Boil on a six day bike packing trip from Canada to Montana and it proved well worth a bit more weight over more stripped down stoves. The Jet Boil got the water up to a boil in just a few minutes and was easy to pour. Also the compactness of the device all in the container was appreciated.

    perfection

    Perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just got back from a weekend of backpacking in Grandaddy Basin and I was very impressed by the Flash. My family purchased the original model and it's great seeing how JetBoil has improved this over the years. It was compact enough to easily fit into my 36 liter pack, along with my other gear, and it was very simple to assemble, operate and disassemble. While I brought matches, they weren't necessary. At over 10k feet, the ignition button worked flawlessly.

    Efficient and compact

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had my jetboil for several years now and it hasn't failed me yet. From blistering hot temps, to high alpine and sub zero, it has performed flawlessly every time. It boils water within minutes, melts snow, and cooks meals in it if need be. Everything stores inside of itself which makes it pretty nice as well. I have had friends that were blown away by the performance of it and went out and bought one when we got off the mountain. There are other compact systems that work well too, but you can't go wrong with the jetboil versatility. I also have the french press for it as well and it works great.

    Efficient and compact

    FAST

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I primarily got this because my son (boy scout)has one and I envy the speed in which he can boil. Great for morning coffee, freed dried meals, oatmeal, etc. Last trip we used the optional pot stand and cooked on a large cast iron pan with absolutely no worries. very stable, great quality, highly recommend.

    Go to if you plan on using dehydrated fo

      This has been of great use to me when I go backpacking and take dehydrated food like backpackers pantry. It is very small in the pack and the time the water takes to boil is amazing. In two minutes you can have boiling water which makes waiting to eat a non issue. I recommend this item to the backpacker.

      Fast Boil

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Super fast boil. Even with 2 cups I would turn it on, go get the drink mix ready and it was practically done already. The boil indicator on the side is a great feature too. Haven't tried cooking in the pot itself but for boiling water and making drinks it's fantastic.

      The real instant coffee

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is an awesome stove. I really love it in the morning when I want my coffee fast. It boils water in about a minute and doubles as a french press with the right accessories. It isn't great for cooking food but for boiling water or heating up soup its killer. Call or email me if you want to talk stoves or camping equipment.

      Any idea how long a canister lasts? roughly, of course..

      Best Answer

      So many variables to how long a canister will last, but using Jetboil's specs (which are given in liters) a 100g canister will do about 10 liters @ about 2.5 minutes per 1/2 liter at a time, so figure about about 45-50 minutes. For the 230g canister, it's 23 liters, so figure about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Perfect world scenario-10 grams of fuel per liter boiled, or 5 grams per the cup's capacity. Results are going to vary wildly, so give yourself a good margin for error. Hope this helps.

      I mark my cylinders with hashes when I use them. Each hash represents "a boil." Helps me keep track. Would love to tell you how many hashes I've made on a cylinder before it went dry, but I only recently started this process.



      One "trick" for finding the level of gas inside is to pour hot water down one side of the cylinder. Where there is no liquid gas, the metal will stay hot... but at the "waterline" you will feel the metal get cold because the fuel is absorbing the heat.



      Will it work at 10,000 plus feet, or below...

      Will it work at 10,000 plus feet, or below freezing?

      Yes and yes. Here is info provided by Jetboil:

      "All canister stoves suffer a performance drop in cold weather. The colder the fuel, the lower the vapor pressure, and the lower the burner output. The result can be noticeably longer boil times and difficulty lighting the burner with the built-in piezoelectric ignitor. Jetpower?s lower firing rate reduces canister cooling and increases performance. Jetpower fuel, with propane, helps mitigate cold weather problems. We suggest that you keep the canister in a warm pocket between uses and remove it immediately prior to heating your food. Carry an extra canister and keep it warm to swap out with a cold one when necessary, and always carry matches or a lighter as backup."



      Also read neip138207's comment below, which confirms that it will work just fine.

      Best Answer

      I agree with Eli's research above. I do mostly alpine/sub-alpine backpack trips, mostly above 10,000 ft. Last September I spent several nights (and prepared several meals with my Jetboil) above 12,000 ft with no problems. I did keep fuel canister in foot of my sleeping bag and then kept fuel inside jacket just before firing up the stove (as Jetboil recommends). I also tried a homemade fuel "cozy" - out of a couple can coozies - to see if that would hold in heat after removing from sleeping bag (it only seemed to help marginally and I no longer bring it on trips). The only problem that I notice with Jetboil is that the spark igniter doesn't work at higher elevations (or is that due to colder temps?). I rely on my Bic lighter for ignition (also as Jetboil recommends) when that happens.



      You may want to consider Jetboil Sol stoves (both the titanium and non-titanium versions). These models use Jetboil's "Thermo-Regulate Burner Technology" to work in "temperatures down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit".

      I used this on the summit of Mt. of The Holy Cross 14,005' to make coffee and it boiled the water very quickly. We did a sunrise summit. At 5:30am the temp on the summit was in the low 20's with a windchill in the teens and had no issues boiling the water.

      Where can you buy the fuel canister from, it says sold separately?

      How do you refill the gas?

      What type of fuel can you use?

      I see that msr sells extra fuel bottles, would that work for refilling any fuel canister?

      Any sporting goods or outdoor supply store will sell the fuel canisters.

      Refill is accomplished by changing out the empty fuel canister (attaches to the underside of the stove).

      Use isobutane/propane mix fuel.

      As long as the msr replacement fuel canisters are compatible with this stove, you can use them.

      when you say "fuel bottle" do you mean the bottles used for the whisperlite stove or the isopro canisters used for say a pocket rocket? Any type of canister should work (might be some performance issues with different fules but all have the same type of attachment) but the fuel bottles MSR sells would not work with a canister stove. Canister stoves have the disadvantage of needing a whole new canister when they are empty or getting low.

      What's the difference between this and the SOL stove+cup? Is this one smaller?

      Just to be clear, this is larger than the SOL. The flash is 1 liter and the SOL is .8 liter and is also 0.6" shorter and 3.5oz lighter than the flash (according to jetboil specs) It also has a unique valve to help with cold weather use. I will be posting pics for comparison and also weighing both of them with a digital scale. The neoprene cozy is a little thicker and the handle is more durable on the flash, with the SOL being a little thinner cozy and the handle being a thinner rubberized material, to save weight I am guessing. Hope this clears things up and for those who have never seen the SOL.

      How difficult is it to find fuel in Chile? Specifically, I'll be flying into Santiago and hope that it will be possible to find some fuel when I get there.

      Thanks!

      You shouldn't have any problems. Remember that any canister with a Lindal (EN417) valve will work.

      This might help- http://www2.ing.puc.cl/~cseebach/mountain/stores/index.html

      A quick Google search for climbing equipment stores in Santiago, Chile turns up lots and lots of other options. Basically, it doesn't look like anyone has any problem finding what they need with much of anything. Patagonia and Aconcaqua draw in lots of people, so you know that if there's a demand, there's always a supply.

      Try this from Jetboil or give them a call (888-611-9905)to see if they have more distributors in Santiago.

      has anybody used a frybake pan with a jet...

      has anybody used a frybake pan with a jet boil stove?

      The flash personal cooking system includes the pot kit.
      I haven't used a fry-bake pan on it but you'll probably need to turn the heat way down (lids and low temp are the best).
      The jetboil is probably closer to a torch than a stove. It is a directly aplied flame. So you don't want it to heat through the pan before it warms and then heats it. This isn't the experiment you want to do in the field with your food. Try it at home on a few thing to figure out how not to burn it, seems to be the number one problem. Also if you're using a pot stir very frequently.

      Can't decide whether to get the MSR Reactor, Primus EtaPower or this, please help!

      Stove being used between two people, mainly for boiling water to cook dehydrated foods and making powdered drinks.

      Best Answer

      All great stoves. Based on your needs, take the Primus off the table- it's more than just a water boiler, and of the three, it's got the best ability to actually do some cooking in. It's also the heaviest system of the three, but it does also burn multiple fuel types besides just canister fuel. I own one, and have been nothing but impressed, but again, it's one of my "real food" stoves for when weight isn't so much of an issue. The Flash will suit your needs perfectly for hot drinks and boiling water, but it's still basically a personal cooking system. The 1L cup will only boil about 1/2L of water at a time- too little for two people without another companion cup, and requiring several rounds of boiling to serve you both. If you want a Jetboil system that's more suited to preparing two meals and two hot drinks at once, have a look at the Jetboil GCS with the 1.5L pot. The Reactor is a water boiling classic. They don't call it the Reactor for nothing. Higher altitudes, colder climates, fast boil time, a little better ability to actually cook in than the Flash, 1.7L pot that will give the two of you plenty of water for all your needs with just one round. So, of the three, I would go with the Reactor, but then also weigh it against the Jetboil GCS. Hope that helps.

      Based on the info about mostly being used for dehydrated foods and powdered drinks, I think the JBoil would suit your needs fine. the only run-in you might find is that there are two of you, so there might be some waiting. But I've found that the JBoil beats almost any other stove in boil time, so the waiting might be alleviated. The JBoil is more compact, so another plus. But definetley try to compare them all side by side if possible so you can see for your self. Happy Trails!

      What is the main difference between the jetboil flash and the jetboil sol

      Best Answer

      Looks like the Flash weighs 14oz (1 liter water cup) and the Sol weighs 11.5oz (.8 liter water cup). The Sol has Jetboil Thermo-Regulate™ technology, which allows it to function in lower temps... the Flash doesn't. Thats the only difference... The Sol is lighter/smaller and works better in lower temps... Is this worth the extra money? You decide... I personally like standard butane stoves as I am not as limited to only boiling water like with these systems...

      does it come with the gas canister?

      does it come with the gas canister?

      And you're better off trying to find the gas canisters locally if possible. Since compressed gas canisters are considered a hazardous material, they can only be shipped by ground transportation, and they really nail you for shipping and/or special haz-mat fees that drives the price up substantially for just a few at a time.
